It doesn't really hinder game play, at least not yet it hasn't, but is just rather a nuisance.
Here is my system:
Dell Dimension XPS T550 PIII 550 mhz
128 mb RAM upgraded to 256 mb
Windows 98 2nd edition
Soundblaster Live Value card
32mb Diamond Viper 770D NVIDIA AGP graphics card
I appear to have all drivers updated so this is not the problem. Directx is updated to the current version.
If anyone has any idea or possible solutions for this problem please reply. Thankyou very much.
